Hair-Cut Experience

Kenny, You are so right, I should really tell my 'B.R.A.V.E' experience of walking into a NON-ENGLISH speaking salon A.L.O.N.E!

Normally in Malaysia, you walk into the salon without thinking what hairstyle you wanna get, you talk with the hairdresser, exchange some opinions, Satisfy... Chop chop chop!

BUT IN JAPAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I WAS SERIOUSLY OUT OF MY MIND. I WALKED IN.... shit! I WENT BLANK!

ME: カット と カラー お願いします。(Cut & colour please).
Receptionist: !"#$%&'()('&$# (I dunno what he asked).
ME: ...................................................... ::Blurred look::
Receptionist: (THINKING: This is gonna be a bad business) [Gesture me to sit]

Wait....

Hairdresser: !"#$%&('%#(# (I think she asking what style I wanted).
ME: 短くて...................... 何でも大丈夫! (Shorten...... Every style is okay)

I did some fingers pointing to my face, indicating it's round, pulling my hair to cover my face.

She somehow understand that I meant "Face fat, Hair Cover!" PHEW!

Hairdresser: カラー ?(Colour?)
ME: (Try to think very hard)................... (Point at her hair colour and smile.)

She smiles back. Another Phew! Agreement done.

So, she flip flip my hair, and started cutting immediately!!
I was like waiting for my christmas gift not knowing what kind of hair I gonna get, what the colour gonna turn out on me........

I din EVEN DARE TO START THINKING I AM ACTUALLY IN JAPAN AND their appreciation of hair creativity is WAY BEYOND ABSURD!

WHAT IF IT'S A MOHAWK? How shud I tell my mum?! I sat there regreted my impromptu decision.


I started recalling the wonderful moment I had picture taken by David in Tokyo Tower, thou easy flammable but 'normal' looking hair, I started reminiscenting the cheerful moment of myself playing with my own hair before sleep.... (Maybe this is a bit exaggerated :D). And I started thinking where shud I get a cap? and maybe later should invest more on getting a wig....

2 and the half hours later...........


I look something like that.

Well..... Kenny says I looked better. Others say I looked younger. Thanks to Kenny, Thanks 'Sis' for condemning my previous hair without giving any face, indirectly forcing me for the haircut. I am just so glad it's not a Mohawk!

PS: Pictures taken by David with his SLR. :) Thanks!

I think Japanese and Koreans have a way with hair cut... I think one thing I'm gonna miss when I leave Korean would be their saloons... hahah.
